Recommend some. It can be instructional, theory, or anything really.

My two best finds so far have been:

Listen and Sing: Lessons in Ear-Training and Sight-Singing by David A. Damschroder

and:

Music, The Brain, And Ecstasy: How Music Captures Our Imagination by Robert Jourdain.

Music theory for dummies.... one of the greats

The complete idiot's guide to music composition is also great if you haven't checked it out.
#6
Improvisation: Its Nature and Practice in Music by Derek Bailey
Free Play: Improvisation in Life and Art by Stephen Nachmanovitch

they're both thought-provoking, but I would personally recommend the Derek Bailey title more

'tis life

Are you taking the piss out of me or is it an actual book?

There are idiots guides to virtually everything... I wouldnt be surprised if the even had an idiots guide to sex.

Also Im fairly certain hes not trying to insult you or anything. The idiot's guides are fairly informative

^yeah.

They kinda have a bad reputation because there are so many of them, making them seem rushed, but really they are just individual books that happen to be part of the series. I've learned quite a bit from them.

I think the craziest one I've seen is the complete idiot's guide for dummies.
